Everytime I hear about a parent catching a nanny or trusted person being not so loving with their child, one of the first things I think is “Thank goodness they had a video”. It’s amazing what options we have with today’s technology, and how far things have come. Baby monitors are something I’m not sure how parents ever lived without, because of the real sense of security they give us.
I was recently sent the Samsung Wi-Fi Video Baby Monitor to review, a baby monitor that uses Wi-Fi to let parents monitor their children while they sleep, or are in the care of someone else, from anywhere. You can watch them on your computer at work, on your iPad while you exercise, or on your iPhone while commuting, and see your baby in real time all the time.
That is security.
My son is past the age is SIDS worry, but for younger babies, being able to see your child breathing while sleeping provides a sense of peace for a parent in another room of the house, and knowing their caretaker is treating them like the treasures they are makes it easier to step away when you need to. Knowing when your child wakes up saves time so you don’t have to interrupt your chores to keep checking on your baby (or else feel guilty that he might be awake and crying alone), and for every reason a parent could have to want to be able to keep an eye on their baby, a baby monitor like the Samsung Wi-Fi Video Baby Monitor, which is virtually always with you, can satisfy it.
How does it work? You hook up the monitor to your home’s Wi-Fi (or use cables, the Wi-Fi is optional), input the registration code to activate the video, then place it where it can capture your baby on the monitor. It feeds into a site that you can connect to from anywhere, acting as a virtual watch dog. This is a product that will be useful long after your children are no longer babies, for a variety of reasons, and would make a great gift for a new parent because of how versatile and useful it is.
The Samsung Wi-Fi Video Baby Monitor is so teeny too, unlike those noisy, large monitors that were everywhere just a few short years ago. It can be propped anywhere and comes with hardware to permanently attach it in a location as well.
Do you use a baby monitor, and has it made you feel more secure about your child’s safety and well-being as well?
